When using WebMin, sometimes the MySQL panel will not launch correctly.

Step 1: Check that MySQL is installed 

Launch YAST, then Software Management

Search for MySQL

Step 2: Run the MySQL config command, to set the default passwords and remove dummy databases

mysql_secure_installation

Step 3: WebMin can not find the Startup Scripts

If you navigate to WebMin, Servers, MySQL Database Server

Then choose: Module Config

The two paths for the Start and Stop were incorrectly identified:

Original Path: /usr/local/mysql
New Path: /etc/init.d/mysql
